Longwood Gardens


Italian FountainsIf you and your fiancé want to take a break from planning your dream day, World Bride Magazine suggests going to Longwood Gardens. Located in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, it’s an exceptional place to get away and spend some quality time with your beloved.

Longwood Gardens began as an open-garden experience by Pierre S. Du Pont in 1906. Since then, the Gardens has and continues to grow and improve for the delights of guests. From intricate fountains to a variety of flower gardens and architectural designs, Longwood Gardens is known for its horticulture and arts.nightscapeThere is always something new and amazing going on at the gardens. In fact, they are known for their exceptional events and exhibits. For example, the current event that is going on until October 31 is Nightscape. Nightscape is a special show only appreciated at night where lights dance to music, using the trees as their canvas. My boyfriend and I just went to see Nightscape and we thought it was astonishing! Longwood Gardens has events like this year-round. One of my favorites is Longwood Christmas (November 26-January 10), where they decorate the place with festive lights and sounds. They also offer concerts, plays, festivals, camps and more.
Longwood ChristmasWhile you are not able to have your wedding at the gardens, you are allowed to take your wedding pictures there. So if you are looking for some spectacular wedding pictures amongst their picturesque structures, fountains and plants, fill out an application on their website and drag your wedding party out for some beautiful, nature-filled wedding memories.

There are many things to see and do at Longwood Gardens. I have gone many times to see the different displays and enjoy the stunning landscapes and fountains; it never gets old. So on behalf of World Bride Magazine, I recommend taking a trip out to Longwood Gardens with your fiancé or family members because it’s perfect for people of all ages, including kids. Nothing relieves wedding planning stress better than spending the day in a scenic garden setting like Longwood Gardens with your loved ones. When you go, don’t forget your camera to capture all the enjoyable moments you share!
